Good textbook for adults
This lean but thorough textbook teaches the what, how, and why of the basic Latin Rite Catholic Mass, as celebrated in 1903. (Much of this still applies to today's formats, of course.) Includes chapters going very painstakingly through every action of the priest, servers, and people; and the words of each prayer said in Mass, giving the Latin, an English translation, and then explaining why each expression is used. Historical and theological information is provided simply and clearly. Intended as a class for adults, but probably kids could understand most of it.
